Draper Knitting Helps Out During COVID-19 Crisis

We’re pleased to be able to donate fabric for various COVID-19 related initiatives throughout this crisis. Here are a few of the places our fabric is being used.

We are glad to see our donated fabric being put to good use! This just in from Olin College – We did it! Professor Caitrin Lynch delivered 277 masks this morning to the East Boston Social Centers. They are opening Wednesday, and the Director of Early Education tells them that the teachers are excited for the fun first-day activity of mask decorating with fabric markers. A bunch of photos attached—this is the entire batch. These photos include masks sewed by members of the Olin community and they reflect a lot of motivated and care-filled work.
